How to watch season 13 of Shark Tank online from anywhere
After its most-watched season in three years, Kevin O'Leary, Barbara Corcoran and the rest of the Sharks are back with brand new episodes and we have all the details on how you can watch season 13 of Shark Tank on TV or online.
Shark Tank first premiered in the US back in 2009 but the business reality TV series is based on the format of the UK series Dragons' Den which debuted in 2005. However, Dragon's Den is actually a spin-off of the Japanese show The Tigers of Money.
In each episode of Shark Tank, four different entrepreneurs pitch their business ideas to a panel of venture capitalists (known as the Sharks) with the hope of securing financing from them. However, before pitching their ideas, the entrepreneurs have already named a specific amount of money they wish to get as well as a percentage of their business that they're willing to sell to the investors. If the Sharks like an idea, they will negotiate with the entrepreneurs as well as with each other for a percentage of the business.
In addition to series regulars Kevin, Barbara, Daymond John, Robert Herjavec, Mark Cuban and Lori Greiner, season 13 will introduce four new guest Sharks as has been the case since season 7. This time around, actor, entrepreneur and investor Kevin Hart, Good American CEO Emma Grede, Nextdoor co-founder Nirav Tolia and Peter Jones from the BBC's Dragons' Den will be joining the cast.
Whether you're a long-time fan of the show or an entrepreneur looking for tips on how to pitch your own business ideas, we'll show you exactly how to watch season 13 of Shark Tank from anywhere in the world.
